Beauty Reflections: A Look Back At Summer 2010

I can’t believe Summer is almost over. In some ways it lasted for ages and in others it feels like it flew by. Did you enjoy your Summer so far? Do anything special?

As Summer draws to a close, I’ll be reviewing the last of the Summer items I have stashed away and start to concentrate more on Fall and Holiday 2010. It’s quite an exciting time as I simply adore Holiday Collections!

Until we get deeper into Fall and Holiday we might as well enjoy the last days of Summer the best we can right? Here are some great posts from Summer 2010 that you may have missed!

NARS Skin Smoothing Face Prep released this Summer and it wasn’t exactly what I had hoped it would be. Some people loved it, alot of people hated it, and I gotta admit mine fell deep into the Makeup Graveyard!

MAC’s Marine Life Powder is still sitting untouched in my beauty vault, right next to Stereo Rose. It was Summer’s must have item and a hot commodity at MAC counters who got as little as five compacts in stock! Beauty junkies who scored it, struck gold, literally!

I had my Summer crush on the new Stila Raspberry Lip and Cheek Lip Stain!

Hard Candy had a really late Spring release, that turned more into a Summer one for me and one thing that happened to be a must have item was the new Hard Candy Moon Glow, loved it!

Too Faced Lip Insurance Lip Primer turned into a solid gold beauty product as it held my gloss on tight all day long!

The Bath and Body Works Summer Vanillas are still haunting stores after an early Summer release and all these months later!

Lancome took me right to the Riviera with their Summer 2010 Collection!

I was almost a cave dweller with Gloss Fluo De Chanel Brilliant Lip Shine as my guiding light!

The Target Look Book for Spring and Summer 2010 enthralled many of us!

Make Up For Ever Aqua Creams made a major splash with many of us!

I’m still not sure which I loved more this Summer, Lorac’s Hollywood Hot List…..

Or Lorac’s Little Black Palette….!

Wet n Wild ColorIcon Collection was the bestest beauty budget purchase evers!

I loved it so much I decided to convince everyone they NEEDED the DuWop Flight Stick!

Avon’s Sunset Glow Bronzer wasn’t only beautiful, it was an affordable Summer makeup find as well!

Essence Surfer Babe Collection hit Ulta as the first limited edition collection from the brand within the US and boy are we so hopeful it won’t be the last!

Urban Decay Urban Defense defended my Summer skin against the sun and made it look super flawless!

Too bad Stila’s Pro Artist Palette was such a snore!

I hit the Beach Club with Bobbi Brown!

Maybelline created some sizzling Salsa Sun Lipsticks!

These are just some of the happenings on Musings this Summer. Check the archives for more!

Happy readin’!

Eat, Pray, Love Lancome Juicy Tube Gloss Set Marketing Over Done?

I gotta say I find it utterly interesting how Eat, Pray, Love has taken on the beauty industry. The film launches next weekend and has garnered, for some odd reason, its own niche in not only fragrance but cosmetics as well.

Lancome French Coquettes Collection: Lancome Fall Collection 2010

Although a French Coquette sounds like something you’d purchase at a posh bakery, it’s not. You can’t technically eat or make a sandwich with a coquette, sorry.

A coquette is a tease or a flirt of some sort which is exactly what Lancome French Coquettes Fall Collection 2010 is all about. Flirty, tantalizing shades of shimmering shadows and subtle highlights on cheeks, makes for an elegant, sophisticated, yet fun collection.

Would you buy it?

Lancome Color Design Matte Lipstick Review and Swatches

When the makeup gods created the beauty world they also created matte which is kinda the equivalent of Hell on many levels. The makeup gods figured that creating velvety shades of color that blended easily should rightfully have an equally bad formula which didn’t blend so great, had awful shades such as taupe and nude brown. Thus matte came to exist because good can never exist without evil.

Oh, and afterward, the makeup gods had to rest because they tried blending with mattes and it exhausted the hell out of them that’s actually when Sunday came to exist but that’s a story for another day.

Lancome Color Design Matte Lipstick was recently introduced…

And boy was I worried. Matte lipstick is almost as scary as matte eyeshadow.
